cleveland. tend to do well in the middle part of the street, franklin county, that is columbus. in the southwestern part of the state this will be a surprise to the republican party not only in hamilton county, cincinnati but also a republican party across the state. this is the county that they wanted to make blue and make it red again. had not been blue until 1964, it was reliably republican territory. but you lose votes down here when you don't win the county. the other area i want to point out is these are strong republican areas up in warren county. mitt romney did really well, 69% of the vote in that county alone. go back to 2004. you want to see what you need to win that state now? if president bush was at 72%. in a close race like this 2 and 3 points in counties like that can make the difference. mike tobin is live in columbus yet again this morning. mike, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, bill. if you want to look for a cause you can boil it down or simplify it to two words, auto bailout. and to back that up let's look at some of what we got from the exit poll.
heavily for mitt romney. what we need to watch on election night is columbus, where franklin county is, because we've been seeing the romney campaign campaign very heavily in central ohio in and around columbus. we're going to see president obama go there on friday. that's the area that could make up the difference come election night. >> okay. james peterson, last thought here. there is a pattern now of real dishonesty on the part of the romney campaign ads. they're out there saying that romney's been accused of outlawing birth control, contraception. nobody's ever accused him of that. they've said that he's not supporting the right of women to have it covered in their health plans. why are they putting out these desperate ads like jeep's going to china and women are under attack for buying birth control pills? i mean, it's an absurdity. who would be so uninformed as to believe these ads? >> well, chris, that's a different question. there are such a thing as uninformed voters and that's fine, that's part of our process. but this is the silly season. you know this, chris. you've studie
